MTE Design Team Post or It's the SUGAR talkin'!


I've always hated this saying, because of the visual it
gave me BUT it sure looks good on the bag ;)

So you've seen these adorable little flour bags right? You've seen the MTE Halloween stamps right?

It's like a sugar addicts dream isn't it?! Well first make sure you have some of these little bags from the Cotton Bag Company then make sure you have your MTE Halloween Stamps  (I used the Fright Night Phrases, Ghostly Greetings, Fright Night Friends) Aren't they adorable together?! I think my favorite is the BITE ME...this just speaks to the side of me that is so freaking busy and stressed that I wake up with clenched teeth and fists.  

My little pile of bags, truly it took me an hour to stamp them
all-I swear! It was Fun and they took the ink very well.

I used Tsukineko and Colorbox ink (hint the Cranberry looks perfect and bloody) and colored in VERY carefully (on a few, then I realized I had 40 of these little suckers to do, the rest are as they are), and I just want you to know that if you color while watching the Walking Dead...well...you just shouldn't color while you're watching the Walking Dead.
I didn't add twine just to show you the size - 3x5. 
But I must add twine because it's AWESOME in
Black Licorice,Grape Licorice, Lime Licorice, Orange Licorice


I hope you enjoyed this, I had so much fun doing this that I've got my fill and will LET the sugar junkies make some. Aren't I the giver?

MTE Design Team Post or AWAAAAY We Go

Yes yes YES...it's ME, I'm a Spaz,  why you ask? well I'll tell you....

I used Trendy Twine in Stormy, Interactive Card Phrases from MTE,
 The bicycle is from lettering delights WEE svg set

this is one of my favorite cards, and one of the most annoying to make, NOT because the file was bad, BUT because of the most obvious component- me. I annoy the heck out of myself, and if I could I'd kick my own butt, I'd hurt my foot doing so. You see I am rash and move way to quick instead of making sure all my bases are covered. For example, I will just start stamping on the surface instead of first making sure that I'm not stamping on a uneven surface, not stamping on a pen, a pop dot, or even runt candy-don't ask. But really I'm just a klutz. ANYWAY besides all my hidden mistakes, I loved the effects with this card. I used Sugar Gems slider cards, Pretty adorable huh? 

It took me along time to gather the courage to do this but it was perfect for this sweet little giant boy who had a BMX party. My son is now "totally into" BMX. Oh yet another investment...gaaaa

I used the MTE Mustache Mania -love this for little men
 It took me along time to gather the courage to use her files, do this but it was perfect for this sweet little giant boy who had a BMX party. My son is now "totally into" BMX.

 I used lettering Delights "WEE" simple shapes, DCWV  Playground Stack, I looked for dirty muddy looking the black accents are Stickles in Black Diamond, by the time I got to this part I was so annoyed with myself that I needed to get to kickin' my butt. 






Thanks for stopping by and don't forget the MTE & Trendy Twine bundle is still available in limited quantities
you will just love it! It's perfect for those little treat bags for the special kids and for your kids if you want them to be quiet for 36 seconds let them make their own Jack- you see I'm trying to lift the load ladies ;)
